    We have wanted to scale up our Friction folder design for a while, and we just havent had the time to do it. Well one of our clients decided that he didnt want to wait for us to get around to it, so he ordered one, and we are glad he did :)

    So here it is, 5/32 1095 blade, hollow ground with a convex edge and hand rubbed hamon line. Handles are blue anodized Titanium over carbon fiber. The pivot has an oil impregnated bushing and the stop pin is a magnet that acts as a magnetic retention when the blade is open and closed. I know this is not a bushcraft knife, but we hope you like it :)

    thanks for looking, sorry for the cell phone pics, i will take some better pics tonight :)

    We have a drop point blade design for this one as well, basically the same blade we do on our smaller friction folder..just bigger :) for the scales we will be doing different variations, some solid micarta or G10 some with liners, some with Titanium scales anodized different colors. If you have something in mind let us know and we'll make it happen :)

    Sure, the Blade is 5/32 1095 hollow ground with a hand rubbed hamon. the handles are anodized blue titanium with carbon fiber liners. the pivot has an oil impregnated bushing. over all length is 7.5" with a blade length (from front of handle) of 3.17". the price on this one was $350 we will be doing some that are not as fancy (g10 or micarta handles, no hamon) for around 225.

    let me know if you have anymore questions :)
